QB Bryce Petty
Quarterback / Receiver

Move over Oregon, this Baylor offense under head coach Art Briles has taken over the Big 12 and the country by storm with a very similar hurry-up no-huddle look. The stats don't lie, the Bears are ranked No. 1 in total offense. Quarterback Bryce Petty has decided to return for his senior year. Combine the return of Petty with leading receiver Antwan Goodley and you have two seniors with legit Heisman preseason candidacy. Baylor has the skill to run this high scoring system.

Offensive Line / Secondary

The only aspect capable of slowing down this offense are the blockers up front. Only two starters get welcomed back to the fray which includes the tight end position. All-American guard Cyril Richardson cannot be easily replaced. The secondary has played exceptionally well and was a big part of the defensive turnaround in Waco. However, this nickel-based scheme will have to rely on four completely new faces next season to keep the pace.

LB Bryce Hager
* DEPTH CHARTS were only designed as a simplistic gauge for listing players that departed and players that received the most playing experience (consistent starters). NationalChamps.net recognizes the importance of missing personnel data not listed such as redshirts, transfers, injuries, incoming recruits, back ups and alternates. Their coverage will begin with our full 2014 Preseason Preview due out this coming spring.
